now i know what you mean

Ask any diehard Dean fan where Marfa is, and you'll get the same response: "Why, in Texas, of course!" But guess what? Most Texans don't know where Marfa is. My friends in Houston and Dallas couldn't tell me where it was. Heck, the Texas telephone operators never even heard of it! (That’s “M-A-R-F-A” not “M-A-R-T-H-A”) I know Texas is a giant state. But for fans of the movie "Giant" -- especially James Dean fans -- Marfa is a very special place, the last surviving link to the late star's film legacy.
